ONLY YOU KNOW….by Carl Gooch

Only You Know

O Lord, only you know and I know,

Of all the wicked thinks I’ve done.

Yet I know on the cross long ago,

You paid the price for every one.

Only you know and I know,

The truth of why I love to sing.

Only you know and I know,

You’re the reason for everything.

There was a time I lost my way,

I wander around lost and alone.

I heard the words you had to say,

Calling to me to come home.

Only you know and I know,

The truth of why I love to sing.

Only you know and I know,

You’re the reason for everything.

Your love I’ve come to know,

And the mercy of your Son.

Let my life your blessings show,

Everything that you have done.

Only you know and I know,

The truth of why I love to sing.

Only you know and I know,

You’re the reason for everything.

CHANGE, by Carl Gooch

Change
 
Change is not always good,
Change is not always bad,
But change will always be
Different from what you had.
 
When change is offered
Beware of what they speak.
True it may be change,
But is it the change you seek?
 
Do not trade the path of right,
For what seems an easier way.
It may seem to be a good change
But it will only lead you astray.
 
Beware of smooth words,
Those that please the ear.
They will confuse the mind
And bring on a bitter tear.
 
Some pound on their chest
That their pride has bloated.
They soon forget that truth
Doesn’t need to be sugar coated.
 
In a world filled with change,
To us will come change.
But God’s word does not change,
And that is what should change us.
